Yes they are but since all of my media is already in digital format I have no reason for even making a $50 investment in the device. I was going to test it on my old machine to see how well it worked so I'd know if it would be a good solution for one of my parents that does have a significant collection they'd like to store.
I just wanted to make sure the concept worked seamlessly before recommending it (or I would be subjecting myself to the feared family "tech support" calls when the device failed to work as advertised- I'm sure you know how this goes!).
Anyways, it's Friday and I think that $50 would be much better invested in a decent bottle of scotch for the weekend! (ohh no, did I say that in a tech forum?!)
